INTERNAZIONALE MOTOCICLISTE 2009
FEMALE RIDE DAY
Toronto Ontario May 2, 2011 - This week, on Friday,
May 6th, women riders around the world will get on their motorcycles
or scooters to celebrate the fifth International Female
Ride Day. This unique and globally synchronized
event has no other counterpart in the world
and will bring together thousand of women motorcyclists
from all over the planet.
In 2011, the International Female Ride Day is about to precede
prior years attendance as more countries and women riders
join the action.
Female Ride Day (IFRD) whose simple theme asks women to “JUST
RIDE”, is a designated day, aimed at bringing
awareness to the existing and mounting numbers of women motorcyclists.
It is the only event of its kind on the planet and which has
been bringing women riders together since 2007.
female Ride Day is a unique event in the world. No other event
is or has ever reached out to women from all parts of the
world on just one global, synchronized day- this is the real
deal! It’s success is equally attributed to women riders
of all ages, styles of riding and motorcycle brands who took
this idea I presented to them five years ago and made it what
it is- phenomenal!” says Vicki Gray,
founder of the International Female Ride Day and of MOTORESS.
“For the 5th year we’re so excited to include
women rider groups in Russia, Germany and India to the action.
Since the beginning, IFRD has attracted more and more women.
It is incredible to see its growth! Women know that they are
participating in a unique event that has no relation whatsoever
to the type of bike they are riding”, states Vicki.
its introduction in 2007, International Female Ride Day has
continued to expand demonstrating magnificent growth. This
has also been a result of the endorsement and support from
the motorcycle industry and its prominent leaders, renowned
female rider clubs, and international governing bodies such
as Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM). In 2011
women riders throughout Canada, United States, Australia,
England, The Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Poland, Israel, Hungary,
Slovakia, India, Russia Germany and more - will contribute
to the campaign in compelling numbers.
